Parameters related to liver oxidative stress, Kupffer cell function, and hepatocellular injury were assessed in control rats and in animals subjected to lindane (40 mg/kg; 24 h) and/or iron (200 mg/kg; 4 h) administration. Independently of lindane treatment, iron overload enhanced the levels of iron in serum and liver. Biliary efflux of glutathione(More)
The enantiomer BAY X1005 [(R)-2-[4-(quinolin-2-yl-methoxy)phenyl]-2-cyclopentyl acetic acid] potently inhibits LTB4 synthesis in isolated PMNL of various species (IC50 mumol/l, human 0.22, rat 0.026, mouse 0.039) and LTC4 synthesis in mouse macrophages (IC50 0.021 mumol/l). Due to high protein binding the in vitro potency for LTB4 synthesis inhibition in(More)
BAY X1005, (R)-2-[4-(quinolin-2-yl-methoxy)phenyl]-2-cyclopentyl acetic acid, is an enantioselective inhibitor of leukotriene biosynthesis. It effectively inhibits the synthesis of LTB4 in A23187-stimulated leukocytes from rats, mice and humans (IC50 0.026, 0.039 and 0.22 μmol/l, respectively) as well as the formation of LTC4 (IC50 0.021 μmol/l) in mouse(More)
In a patient with refractory anemia with excess blasts (RAEB), a somatic mutation of mitochondrial transfer RNA(Leu(UUR)) was detected in bone marrow cells. Heteroduplex analysis indicated that 40% to 50% of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) molecules in the bone marrow (BM) carried the novel G3242A mutation. The proportion of mutant mtDNA was higher in CD34(+)(More)
To further clarify the role of ribosomal protein S14 (RPS14) in myelodysplastic syndrome, we examined RPS14 transcription in bone marrow derived CD34+ cells from patients with non-5q- myelodysplastic syndrome and found a reduced expression of RPS14 in 51 of 72 (71%) patients. MDS patients with an intermediate-1 risk (INT-1) score according to the(More)
